Dental sensitivity occurs when the enamel protecting your teeth becomes thinner or when gum recession exposes your roots and underlying tooth structure. The underlying tooth structure, or dentin, is the part of the tooth that covers the nerves. It is softer than tooth enamel and contains a number of pores or “tubes” that run from the outside of the tooth to the nerves. These tubes can be stimulated by changes in temperature or certain foods, which cause you pain and discomfort.

If your teeth become sensitive or painful when exposed to hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods and drinks, or when breathing in cold air, then you probably have sensitive teeth. Tooth sensitivity may be the result of one or more factors, including:

Bruxism (teeth grinding)
Overaggressive brushing
Cracked teeth
Periodontal disease
When you visit our office, our dentists will examine your mouth to determine the cause of your sensitivity and develop an appropriate treatment. There are several treatments that we may recommend depending on the cause of your sensitivity. These treatments include:

Fluoride treatment
Dental fillings
Deep dental cleanings
Dental bonding
Night guards
Using a special type of toothpaste to soothe and strengthen your teeth
Improving your oral hygiene routine and brushing gently
And more!
